May 25, 2016 – Parabilis Wins NASA Contract for Novel Propulsion System

Parabilis Space Technologies, Inc. of San Marcos, CA announced that it was awarded a contract with NASA to develop an innovative hybrid motor propulsion solution utilizing a novel bi-axial fuel grain design.  This system will be significantly shorter than conventional hybrid motor systems, while still maintaining the traditional advantages commonly associated with hybrid rockets:  safety, reduced complexity, and storability.  This new system will leverage additive manufacturing for the rocket nozzle and injector system in order to decrease weight and part count, and is an ideal propulsion technology for a variety of sample return missions from Mars or other bodies with significant gravity wells.
